Birdman

2014 –  In June, 2014,  Tweet from JD: Trailer for “Birdman”…new film from director of “Amores Perros”…looks awesome youtu.be/xIxMMv_LD5Q

In December, 2014 Ralph says Howard needs to see Birdman.  He loved it. Steve Brandano said it’s great, too.  Says it’s the best fucking movie.  Robin said she wasn’t a fan.

In January, 2015, Howard agreed with Robin that he didn’t like the movie.  Said it’s a story that’s been done before and better, like All That Jazz or Chorus Line.  It’s marketed as something it’s not, so you go expecting a different kind of movie.  Howard again bashes Birdman-saying it’s shit, but Hollywood loves movies about movies so it’s going to win all kinds of awards–but the general public doesn’t give a shit.  JD came in to try and defend the movie, saying it was really good.  Howard yelled at him, again saying it’s shit, and don’t argue with the boss.

    Aaarggh!
    I don’t understand the over-rating of this movie. Technically beautiful, great cinematography, yes….. BUT the story is over dramatic and self-important. In the end – content is king.
    Storyline: Boy has career – boy loses career – boy might be able to redeem himself with one last hurrah.
    Written by Writer(s) Too Close to Hollywood: It’s obvious the writer(s) think the average movie goer could not possibly understand the angst and complex nature of the film/play industry. No reference can be to narrow, no dot can be too close.
    Unfortunate Result: A beautifully technical and well acted film got lost in it’s own self-importance.
    Note to writers: If you are going to write about your industry, bring outside influences in so they can keep track of your ego…..
